I need to find the product/s of a reaction, which has to be chosen from the list of compounds
A - L. I thought the answer was only K but it seems to be wrong or that there is another product to add.

(See the attachment). Thanks!

Potassium Dichromate is an oxidizing agent that is used to oxidize alcohols. In this case potassium Dichromate and hydrochloric acid oxidises the alcohol, which is the reactant of the reaction to produce the carboxylic acid, which is characterized by the functional group COOH. The product of my reaction is therefore that one represented by the letter E. Thanks for your hints!
